We have been contacted by someone who is looking to find the student paramedic who saved her father’s life after he had a heart attack whilst at Gatwick Airport (North Terminal).
The male patient collapsed whilst in the baggage reclaim area; we aren’t sure of the exact time of the incident.
It would be great to be able to find the student paramedic and with 250,000 followers then you just never know! We might be able to locate him!
The from the family member of the patient states:
‘My family and I are looking for a man, who on the 23rd of August saved my dads life by giving him CPR at London Gatwick north terminal airport – baggage reclaim.
‘Due to the chaos that surrounded my dad at the time, we never got the name or contact details [of the paramedic].
‘We are hoping to find him so that we can thank him for saving the precious life of my dad and tell him that his attempt to save him worked and that dad is still with us.
‘We do not know any information about him apart from that he was a week away from becoming a qualified paramedic.
‘Please could you share so that we can meet this special man! Thank you x’
So we know that this is going to be a bit of a long-shot, but if it was you who saved this man’s life, then please get in contact with us here at Emergency-Services.News so that we can pass your details onto the family members of the male whose life you saved.
Of if you are a colleague or family member of the paramedic, then please get in touch with our team – we are hoping that the paramedic may have mentioned this incident to either his colleagues, family, friends or both!
As far as we are aware, we are the first “large” platform to make this appeal and of course we are mindful of the fact that the paramedic may not wish to come forward.
So we will only share this article once as we do not want to make the paramedic feel that they ‘must’ come forward.
Let’s see if we can do this!

One of the reasons we started 'Emergency Services News' was because we became tired of reading badly informed stories about the emergency services which seemed only ever to highlight negative aspects of the job.
We want to be the unheard voice of the remarkable men and women who serve in the emergency services, NHS and armed forces. And with around 500k page views each month, we are getting there!
As income from ads, the mainstay source of income for most publishers, continues to decline; we need the help of our readers.
